Christopher Stribley Reader Find

By Christopher Stribley in New Trends on Wednesday 3 September 2014

You may already be familiar with graphic artist Newt Clements’s Happy Meals. In the past he has created tributes to great movies, such as The Exorcist and Carrie, and TV shows, such as Wonder Woman, Twin Peaks, and American Horror Story. Well Newt has been at it again, but this time his creation has caused quite a backlash on Facebook, where a couple of people posted it, one even indicating that it’s a parody or novelty idea. Apparently some people are not real thrilled about the idea of a Ouija Board Happy Meal.

By Christopher Stribley in Cool Websites on Friday 23 November 2012

Tilda Swinton. That’s really all I need to say and your head fills with images, right? She’s a force to be reckoned with, a true chameleon, and she is perfect in whatever form she adopts. She’s always unmistakably … Tilda. The Tweets in this account capture her preternatural essence beautifully, cleverly, and at times hilariously. […]

I’m going to be polite and refrain from using the ‘C’ word here, but it’s that time of the year again. We all know someone who’s just impossible to buy for, but I’m not one of those people. In fact I’m pretty easy to please and usually when these occasions roll around I’d be quite […]

Cut the World: new single by Antony and the Johnsons

Christopher Stribley Reader Find

By Christopher Stribley in New Music on Tuesday 21 August 2012

On August 7, Antony & the Johnsons released a new album of live orchestral versions of some of their best songs, featuring arrangements by Nico Muhly, Rob Moose, Maxim Moston and Antony. In addition to these splendid reworkings and a very interesting, humorous, and informative speech from Antony, is the achingly gorgeous title track, Cut the World. As beautiful as the song is, with Antony’s soaring vocals, the sweeping strings, and lilting brass, the video for the song is a magnificently disturbing work of art.

Christopher Stribley Reader Find

By Christopher Stribley in New Art on Tuesday 17 July 2012

Last night, I had the great luck of catching Lady Aiko in the act of working on her new mural on Houston Street. The wall, which was home to a famous Keith Haring mural back in 1982, has been home to a number of great murals in recent years. As wonderful as it has been to have this area brought to life by the likes of Os GemeosFAILE,Retna, and JR, there has also been a lot of resent from people who wanted the original Keith Haring mural to always be there.

I love Superheros and I love religious iconography, so when saw this guy’s artwork, it was immediately a ‘why didn’t I think of that moment’. He takes statues and images of religious icons and gives them a Superhero makeover. They all look so comfortable in their new attire, too.

By Christopher Stribley in Cool Websites on Thursday 29 March 2012

There are some great themed Tumblrs out there, from Casually Pepper Spraying Cops, to Chicks with Steve Buscemi Eyes. Then there’s the life-affirming Fuuuu Comics. Recently, a new Tumblr has found a special place in my heart: One Tiny Hand. Celebritites old and new are given a new lease on life on this blog, which reimagines them or someone near them with one tiny hand. Although I’ve looked pretty carefully the image of Kim Kardashian on there and I’m pretty sure it’s undoctored.
